Whether or not you can connect your heart rate monitor to your Samsung Galaxy S5 depends upon what type of heart rate monitor it is that you have. If you have a generic heart rate monitor without any extra features such as Bluetooth, WiFi, or NFC, you won't be able to connect it to your phone unless it came with a USB adapter. However, if you do have a heart rate monitor with these features, you should be able to use the heart rate monitor with your Samsung Galaxy S5 without any issues. Since we don't know what manufacturer made your specific heart rate monitor model, you will have to refer to their website to learn about the pairing process and what you need to do to make it happen. Search Google for "[your model of heart rate monitor] pair Samsung Galaxy 5" to learn how to pair your two devices together. Make sure your Samsung Galaxy S5 is signed into a Google account so you can use the Google Play Store if you need to download an application to use the two devices together.

How do I connect my Samsung Galaxy S5 as a media device?

I recorded a video, and I want to put it into my laptop, so I used a USB cord, but it won't popup as a media device? Also, when I try to load it straight to YouTube, it just says "pending" for ever and ever and never actually loads.
